The latest rumor...

US News & World Report, via TalkLeft writes:
"rumors of Cheney's impending resignation are flying around DC -- as well as speculation Bush would appoint Condi Rice to replace him..."
According to the article:
The rumor spread so fast that some Republicans by late morning were already drawing up reasons why Rice couldn't get the job or run for president in 2008.
"Isn't she pro-choice?" asked a key Senate Republican aide.
Others in the administration are skeptical. TalkLeft is too: "I don't buy it," she writes, speculating that Cheney will play dumb till the very end. I tend to agree but apparently none of us is so cynical we won't spend a few minutes passing the rumor along...

Incidentally, if you want to get a feel for that distinct rush associated with the treasonous outing of a CIA operation, adfreak points to a new sweatshirt for sale that reads: Property of Brewster-Jennings -- the fake company Plame worked for in her capacity as undercover agent.
